New models Android and iPhone have already appeared and will soon begin to be actively sold, which means that now is the time to save money for their purchase. Given current Apple technology prices, many will have to sell the old one before buying a new iPhone. How to do this correctly and as profitably as possible, you will learn from this article.
Prepare your smartphone for sale
Before you post a sale, you need to do a few things to help sell your iPhone at a better price.
- Disable “Find iPhone” if you are the owner of an iOS device
- Reset to erase all your data.
- Put your device in order and take high-quality photos
- Find original accessories
Now that the preparation is complete, we can only sell the smartphone. There are many places on the Internet that will help you find buyers and sell your old smartphone.
Trading platforms, local sites
Many popular sites have replaced newspaper ads. This is a good option for those who do not wish to contact the shipment.
All these portals have a similar structure and working principles. Submitting an ad is almost always free (unless you put up 10 lots per day), all you need to do is go through a simple registration procedure, upload a photo of your iPhone, make a description and specify phone or other contact details. Choose a better photo, do not forget about the detailed description, indicate your contacts and price.
It’s easier to determine the price if you look at the offers of other users by choosing the condition and equipment similar to your iPhone. It all depends on your desire to sell: if you are in no hurry, you can choose the average price and above the average price, if you can’t wait to sell your old iPhone and buy a new one, you can lower the price a little, making it more attractive among other offers.
Auctions are a more difficult way to sell your iPhone, because you need to know and adhere to more rules, as well as because of the identity verification process and the need to have a good seller’s reputation. Nevertheless, all these difficulties pay off with interest, since gadgets are sold at higher prices at auctions. The reason for this is the very reputation that is formed from the reviews of your contractors, which buyers pay attention to. This is not on the portals of ads, so people are willing to overpay at the auction, but be sure that they are dealing with an honest and trustworthy seller.
Trade-in when buying a new iPhone
Not the most profitable, but fast and convenient way. You just hand over your old iPhone to the store (at a reduced price, of course) and pay off part of the cost of the new one with the proceeds. Quite a lot of outlets work according to such a scheme, so you can easily find them if you agree with the proposed conditions.
Well, that seems to be all. Now you know how to prepare and sell your iPhone or Android. We hope this article will be useful to you when it becomes necessary to sell an outdated device.
